This European Standard specifies physical and performance requirements, methods of test and marking requirements for industrial bump caps. Industrial bump caps are intended to provide protection to the wearer against the effects of striking his head against hard, stationary objects with sufficient severity to cause laceration or other superficial injuries. They are not intended to provide protection against the effects of falling or thrown objects, or moving or suspended loads. NOTE : An industrial bump cap should not be confused with an industrial safety helmet as specified in EN 397.
